What to expect on the day

COVID-19 has shaken the very foundations of the UK and our economy. The railway is not alone in facing some of the biggest challenges in its history – plummeting passenger numbers after a long period of unprecedented growth; the prospect of changing work patterns; and the imperative to make every journey COVID-safe, are just the beginning of what’s keeping rail leaders awake at night. But the railway was already entering a period of flux with structural change top of the agenda, pressure for fares reform building and the growing necessity to decarbonise faster.

Taking place over three consecutive half days in February…

Day One: A regional transport strategy

Day Two: Building sustainability into the railway

Day Three: Building the foundations for a prosperous future
